To produce this book, the second volume of the Fabricator, the board 
of editors have spent many weary hours trying to do justice; to those con- 
cerns who supported us so generously by their advertisements and to the 
students (poor boobs) who so innocently turned over some of their hard 
earned cash, "that they might see themselves as others see them." 

After the publication of this book, the editors expect to spend the sum- 
mer in the cooler climes of Canada with the "Prophets," in close communi- 
cation with the spirits. 

The first volume of the Fabricator was a success as a year book of the 
New Bedford Textile School, and we the editors have tried our best, to 
make this volume as good, if not better than the first. It is our sincere 
wish, that succeeding classes will keep up the good work on the Fabricators 
of the future.

WILLIAM E. HATCH 

In Memoriam 

As a token of the high esteem in which he was held, we, the class of 
1924, dedicate this volume of the Fabricator, to the memory of our former 
president and principal; ever present in the hearts of his associates, who 
knew him to be endowed with, not only superior intellectualism, but also a 
keen understanding of human nature.

HISTORY OF THE NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 




LR1XG the year 1895, the legislature of Massachusetts passed a law enabling cities to erect 
and equip buildings to be used as textile schools, the cost to be borne partly by the city and 
partly by the state. 

On August first of that year, a number of New Bedford mill men held a meeting to boom a 

textile school, realizing that this city, as a center of the cotton industry, was an ideal place 

for such a school. By earnest endeavor and untiring efforts these men succeeded in getting the 

city's interest ami in due time a building was erected. The school was opened for its first term 

in September. 1897. 

Mr. VV. 1. Kent was the first president of the board of trustees, but soon resigned because of ill 
health. Mr. C. E. Dinman succeeded Mr. Kent but resigned shortly after, for the same reason. 

In February. 18 Q S. Mr. C. E. Briggs was elected president, and served during the construction of the 
first unit of the school buildings. He gave his time freely, and on completion of the building received 
a testimonial from the trustees in recognition of his work. Mr. Briggs resigned in January, 1902, and 
was succeeded by Mr. Burgess, who remained about one year. He was followed by Mr. Devoll, who 
served about the same length of time. 

Mr. William E. Hatch took the office in 1904, at which time he was superintendent of the New 
Bedford Schools. Mr. Hatch also accepted the position of Managing Director, and his work may be ap- 
preciated by the high rank the school holds in the American cotton industry. On the retirement of Mr. 
Hatch in June. 1922. Mr. Smith succeeded him to the office, as principal. Previous to this, Mr. Smith was 
head of the Cotton Yarn Department.

WILLIAM SMITH 
Principal 

Upon the retirement of our former president and principal, Mr. Hatch, 
the board of trustees elected Mr. Smith to the office of principal, in June 
1922. Before taking this position, he was head of the Cotton Yarn Depart- 
ment. His selection of machinery and courses of study to master it have 
made the school known throughout the world. 

He is a widely known authority on the manufacture of cotton yarn. He 
has written many papers on the subject, one of which is at the present time 
spread throughout the country in the hands of many pupils and executives. 

As principal of the school, he rules with a fairness and firmness which 
the students appreciate. His main thought is of the school and its welfare, 
and to attain this end, he spends many hours in making this "The School 
Worth While."

SAMUEL HOLT 
Assistant Principal 



Designing Dep't 



Mr. Holt has been with the school since its start, and has built up courses 
in Design, Cloth Analysis, Jacquard, Color and Commission House. 

The school should congratulate itself on having such a remarkable man 
- Mr. Holt on its faculty. He is widely known, and is an authority on many 
subjects pertaining to the designing and weaving of cloth. All but a very few 
of the present designers in New Bedford have studied under him. 

Mr. Holt came to the school at its birth, leaving a position as designer 
in a Lowell mill. That indefinable something in man which keeps him 
teaching others, has kept him with the school all these years, and we hope 
for many more. 




[Thirteen] 




MORRIS H. CROMPTON 
Mechanical Dep't 

Mr. Crompton is one of the best known instructors at Textile School, 
where he has been teaching for some years. He came to us from the Morse 
Twist Drill Co. of New Bedford. Since the advent of the advisory board, he 
has been very active in governing' the school sports. 

In steam engineering and mechanical drawing, Mr. Crompton is efficient, 
and certainly a hard worker. We owe much to him for the helping hand 
he has given us whenever we struck a snag. 



[Fourteen'] 



FRED E. BUSBY, B. S. 
Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Dep't 



M. I. T. '97 



Mr. Busby has been head of the Chemistry Dep't for the past 5 years, and 
anyone who has seen the Chemistry class of 1924 in action knows that this 
is no little job. 

With theory obtained at Technology and practical knowledge acquired 
in the laboratories and finishing" plants of Xew England during the past 20 
years this gentleman is ever willing to hand out to those inquiring students, 
helpful knowledge that will be found in no books. This class owes most of 
its chemical knowledge to Mr. Busby and with a little common sense ought 
to ascend to high places in the textile industry. 




[Fifteen'] 




DANIEL H. TAFT 
Carding and Spinning Dep't 

Mr. Taft came to this institution five years ago and after serving- as 
an assistant instructor in the carding and spinning department for three 
years, took charge of that department as successor to Mr. Smith in 1922. 

Having had years of practical experience in the mill he is able to impart 
the knowledge so gained, to us. Although he is a native of New Bedford, 
Mr. Taft spent seven years as overseer of carding in the Shipment Knitting 
Mills in Pennsylvania before coming to this school. He has also held other 
positions of responsibility in some of the best mills in the country. 



[Sixteen] 



LEWIS G. MANNING 
Knitting Dep't 



X. B. T. S. 1909 



This gentleman became head of the knitting department two years ago. 
as successor to Mr. Frank Payton. 

Previous to coming here. Mr. Manning has held executive positions in 
several knitting mills throughout the country. 

He is a former student of the school having graduated in the class of 
1909. The knowledge he received at good old "Tex" coupled with the knowl- 
edge he acquired through his vast experience in the knitting line, affords 
him the ability to impart a thorough understanding of this industry to the 
students. 

Mr. Manning will also be remembered for having coached one of the 
best basketball teams the school has ever produced. 




[Seventeen'] 




WILLIAM ACOMB 
Weaving Dep't 

Mr. William Acomb, who has been with the school for several vears, 
took over the position of head instructor of the weaving department after 
the former head Mr. Thomas Yates retired.. 

In taking up the new duties, Mr. Acomb has proved himself to be a 
very efficient and able instructor. His many years of experience in weaving 
affords him an opportunity to impart such knowledge to the students, that 
they are able to get a good insig'ht of the intricacies of the art. 

He has introduced many new ideas in the curriculum of the weaving 
department, which will help the students after they leave the school.

CLASS HISTORY 




HREE long- years ago, "Tex" was blessed by receiving the best bunch of intellectuals that ever 
entered into its mysterious depths. 

We came bright and fresh, glorying in the fact (so we thought) that nothing more or noth- 
ing new could be crowded into our wise and aged brains. Oh! how old we felt, for we were 
now in COLLEGE. 

Now, as we are about to leave, we feel far older than we ever thought a man could feel, also 
with the realization that what we have learned is merely a drop in the bucket compared with that 
which is to come. 

Our first w r eek in school brought us down to earth with a thud, many of us thinking that we had 
landed on a picket fence. Ever since that first Aveek, we have been slowly but surely climbing out of the 
rut of ignorance, thanks to those men, our teachers, who have so ably guided us, and who, in fact, 
have often wished that they could push us. 

Let us ramble back to that first and glorious year which we spent here. Our first remembrance, in 
the line of activities, is the football team, which was made possible because of the excellent material to 
be had in our class. Basketball and baseball followed in their order, with our men very numerous in 
these teams. 

Many of us joined the fraternities and entered into the social life of the town with a bang, once we 
got acquainted. The boys upon seeing some of the town's most be-u-ti-ful girls decided immediately 
that the school could not have been more strategically placed ; the girl back home was forgotten but we 
were soon in the toils of another, and we don't mean maybe. 

During the first summer vacation, we piled roving or fed the horses ; this, for us, Avas a terrible blow, 
as we thought that the least we could do would be to take the place of the super while he was away on 
a vacation. 

We wended our way painfull}' thru the second year, the hardest of the three, with many a groan and 
a curse, but nevertheless, most of us were still on the spot when the bell rang ending the second round. 

This last year, the best of all, has flown by with ever increasing speed, days flying as swiftly as the 
sea gull dropping from his lofty flight to take a look at the fair ones in swimming at Fort Phoenix. 



ITwcnty-tzvo] 



Many enjoyable parties, dances and dinners (free ones) were held; in fact, anything that kept our 
minds away from the terrible date of our graduation, Friday the thirteenth, was enjoyable. 

Among the noted celebrities who enhance our class are: 

"Dinty" Finnell, the laziest man in the chemistry class. 

"Nib" Hurley, the bozo with the ten inch pants. 

"lake" Pressman, comedian par excellence. 

"Driver" Collins, o\ "Covered Wagon" fame. 

"Bill" Truesdale, the toughest guy in school. 

"Bob" Pinault. our philosopher and master mind. 

"Red" Dunn, our authority on what to wear and when. 

"Tubby" Woodward, the grouchiest man in school. 

"Dapper Pan" Kwan, who slings the meanest snore we ever heard. 

"Yeke" Willey, the b^st dancer who ever shook a wicked foot. 

Every last one of us is a hard boiled cuss, for who amongst us can not swallow a plug and not even 
bat an eye. 

The class has seen man}' changes in the school, in the building itself — the new addition — which con- 
tains a gym. a weave room, and a spinning room ; in the faculty, the passing on of Mr. Hatch and Mr. 
Payroll. Mr. Smith becoming principal, Mr. Yates and Mr. McEvoy resigning, and the coming of Messrs. 
Garlington, Manning. Moore. Woolam, Holden, Walton and Glover. 

\\ e all leave with great admiration for good old N. B. T. S. and its corps of instructors ; also with the 
feeling that each and every one of us will soon (omitting the first ten years) be men of note.

HENRY COLLINS 



Phi Psi 




Pawtucket Higfh School 



"Bis? Dick" "Driver" 



General Cotton 



Football 1 — 2 Class Secretary 



Contrary to all reports. New Bedford got its first showing of "The 
Covered Wagon" when Henry wheezed into town behind his six horses. 
He pulled them up in front of the school for backward boys, hitched up to a 
hydrant because he had balloon tires, kicked the mud of Pawtucket off his 
feet, and sauntered in. 

The records show that Henry has stayed in town only one week-end 
in the three years, which goes to show how the iron hand of the other sex 
can control him. He is easy prey for a good looker, on condition that she 
is a blond. But on the other hand, the girls are lucky, for he is "a manly 
boy," as Horace once said. 

An revoir. Driver, don't forget to grease the wheels after every trip. 



WALTER F. CURRY

Chemistry 



Joe came into our midst three years ago and announced his ambitions 
of becoming a chemist. He first came into prominence as a member of a 
local brass band, but soon gave that up and settled down to diligent study. 
His greatest work has been on artificial silk. He says that nobody knows 
very much about that subject, even to himself. 

Joe is the original humorist in the small lab, and is also the proud pos- 
sessor and wearer of "the pants," renowned throughout the school. He is 
one of our shining lights in the laboratory, and we know that he will knock 
starches and sizings for a row of loops when he gets out in the mill.

rextile school woke up one morning three years ago to find that it had 
on its roster, this collegiate chap from Roslindale. Soon after his arrival 
here lessons and hooks were forgotten, and all the boys studied under his 
tutilage, how to be collegiate. His whole three years were taken up in 
bobbin throwing, indoor golf and in trying to ascertain whether or not 
Hardy's girl reads a magazine or a newspaper. 

Red is a great "Ladies' Man," as he certainly gets the ladies. His nerve 
combined with his good looks (?) got him in with the most prominent 
families in Xew Bedford. 

Xext year Red intends to hit for the south, and you can bet on Red 
making good.

This likeness is none other than that pride of the Chem. Lab. and des- 
pair of all the fair maidens. "Dinty" Finnell, R. C. What the R. C. stands 
for any chemist knows, but they're a clanny bunch and we couldn't get it 
out of them. 

Dinty tosses a mean basket with the K. K. K. — but Mr. Brooks can toss 
him for a fall anytime in advanced Organic. He reached his real stride last 
fall, when he worked up to an M. S. D. degree. (Master Sock Dyer.) 

Dinty contributed considerable to the wear and tear of the floor at Little 
Bournehurst. but that's all over now, and we expect great things of him. 
even if he does think that photographers still use head-clamps.

EDWARD FOSTER 

New Bedford High School "Ed" 

Pres. of A. A. — 2 Pres. of Tennis — 3. 



Delta Kappa Phi 
General Cotton 



This example of perfect purity hails from somewhere in the direction 
of East Fall River, coming to Textile from the local High School. Ed is 
the peer of them all in the rough art of tennis having won the cup offered 
by the Chinese Club to the champion of the tennis tournament. He also went 
in strenuously for indoor sports, having won his letter in bobbin-throwing. 
He was a very able assistant to Capt. Pressman in this sport. 

As soon as he can borrow the money we expect him to get married but 
we fear that he will be one of the few; (who want to borrow money.) 



New Bedford Hisrh School 



HUDSON E. HARDY 

"Harold Lloyd" 



Phi Psi 
General Cotton 



Three years ago. Hardy deciding work was unnecessary, signed up at 
"Tex," so that he would be able to obtain a good insight into the art of climb- 
ing ladders. He has succeeded — in falling off" them. Before coming here he 
must have magnetized his head, as his superb dome has a great affinity for 
bobbins etc. In his first year he proceeded to blow up the chem. lab. by 
holding a match to a beaker of benzine and this caused several reactions, 
one of which was the reduction of his coat to ashes. 

Lately Hardy has been hanging around the Empire Restaurant. We 
wonder why. However, as a student Harry has made g"ood. He knows his 
stuff, and his mechanical turn of mind will some day give us the opportunity 
of saying that a great inventor graduated from Textile.

_2_4. Manager Baseball 3. 

The mention of Joe's name recalls a chair or similar parking place for 
his anatomy. As a chair warmer, he would easily qualify as an instructor. 
It- is the hope of the chemistry students, that a chair be decorated and placed 
in the laboratory to perpetuate his memory. 

foe took the general cotton course for two years, but could give no 
reason why he should work forever, so he changed to the chemistry course. 
Being a special student, his program was generally unknown, so he easily 
managed to get out of work, though he obtained his degree of 1). F. after 
two months' study of analytical chemistry. 

There being no other "courses in the school for him to pursue, it seems 
as though the time has come when Joe must step forth into the world to 
worry the wolf.

Asst. Editor Year Book. 
With his hands in his pocket and his pockets in his pants. Nib came from 
the local High School to the mill institute to take up aesthetic dancing. His 
performances at Duffs Hall show that he has remarkable talent in this art. 
His sole ambition is to attain greater fame than Arthur Murray. His bump- 
ing- knees of course, help him to master the intricacies of dancing. "Nib" is 
quite a ladies' man. His passionate eyes are the reason "Why young girls 
leave home." and he has caused many a broken heart. Never the less. Nib 
has one great failing, he finds it hard getting up in the morning, for he is 
continually late. But having his ability to dance, his passionate eyes, and his 
habit of coming to school late, he will without doubt make a good mill man, 
for he is a good student. Good luck, "Nib."

Dave comes from Hawaii. After graduating from High School down 
there, he departed from the land of pineapples and came up here to Textile 
School. As a chemist, Dave is right there. He can be found in the small 
lab with Mr. Brooks on his trail most any time of the day, making some 
new dye. 

But chemistry is not his only accomplishment. He is a crack swimmer, 
and has taken a goodly share of medals. He can also make a Ukelele talk 
six different languages, and as one of the quintet known as "Grimshaw's 
Holy Terrors," he has earned an enviable reputation as a basketball player. 

We wish you the best of luck Dave and hope that Lady Luck will 
continue to smile on you in the future.

JOSEPH KOLODZIEY 

"Joe" 
Baseball 1. 



General Cotton Course 



Joe gave up the commercial course at the New Bedford High School 
after three years and joined the ranks of Textile, that he might become 
proficient in the gentle art of mastering the tricky cotton fibre. During 
the baseball season of his first year with us Joe spent much of his time 
rounding up runaway flies. His baseball career, however, was terminated 
by illness. Joe's only worry now is the high cost of gas, which prohibits 
the over use of his palatial coupe. In his study of the general cotton course 
Joe is very popular both with his partners in crime and with the instructors. 
We expect that when Joe leaves school he will be overwhelmed with offers 
of positions of high rank.

Sear- Roebuck & Co. Though of a quiet and reserved disposition Kwan 
causes his instructors just a little trouble, because of his unconquerable 
habit of both dozing and snoring 1 . 

'Never mind. Kwan, we know that you obtain enough knowledge in

Great things may be expected from this rising young genius who steps 
forth this year to show 'em how its done.

Here we have a member who has never attempted to place himself in

not following his calling, as he appears to be a natural born musician, 
judging by the way he has kept Mr. Woolam busy in the card room trying 
to keep him from using slubber bobbins as a bugle. 

However he will soon be leaving us to build a cotton mill in China and 
likewise to spread the fame of Textile.

After Fay returned from overseas, he decided he hadn't had enough 
battle, so he got married. Besides Basketball, at which he has been very 
successful as manager, his chief diversion is radio. He can get you any 
station you wish for at a moments notice, and admits that he doesn't have 
to get out of bed to go to church on Sunday morning. 

After studying the general cotton course for three years, Fay has de- 
cided to work for a year before starting his own mill, which is expected to 
revolutionize the cotton industry. 

Best of luck Fay, and we hope that after you have become a successful 
cotton man, you will not forget some of your old pals of the Textile school 
days.

Three years ago. this blonde Adonis, from the great open spaces, entered

ceeded to startle (?) the chemical world. Our Robert is proficient at any- 
thing and everything. He told us so. His greatest gift to the world of Sci- 
ence was the revised law of falling bodies. His Semitic business instinct is 
shown by the bets he makes. We expect to hear great things of our beau 
ideal when he leaves Textile School in the hands of his loquacious Protege 
and hits the road to fame and fortune. Good luck. Bob old timer, we hope 
vou win.

While riding his hydro-cycle along Main Street in Mexico City one day 
in the distant past, John happened to see a bill-board telling what a greal 
place New Bedford was, so he decided to take a chance and after tying his 
trunk on to the hydro-cycle, started pushing for the big town, lie was 
delayed on the way by several bullet punctures in his balloon tires. 

Since arriving here he has acquired a great faculty for losing things, 
especially fountain pens, having lost a total of thirteen during his short 
stay in New Bedford. 

We expect many of the fair sex will miss him when he sails back to 
Mexico.

he has attended this school, no one can remember seeing him in class on 
Monday A. M. before 8.40 and he never fails to have a good (?) alibi about 
the Rivet St. car. 

He also has established for himself quite a reputation as a debater on 
foolish arguments. 

He is readv anvtime now to take over the superintendency of the Passaic

Member of Athletic Advisory Board 

William P. or Potomaine Bill comes from Pawtucket, that sewer of the 
earth famed for its hills, mills and dinner pails. As a student he's there, 
but as a singer he's terrible, it might be said that only the presence of the 
Watch and Ward Society bans his public performance. In his past two years 
at Textile, Bill has gone home but seldom. He usually steals into town 
after dark when both the policemen are asleep and leaves before dawn. 

Bill is quite a touchy person and his classmates have magnified this failing 
both to their own amusement and to his disgust. 

Good luck, Bill we're betting on you to win and also to be married soon.

"Gugene" came to school with the distinction of having led the R. I. 
Interscholastic League in batting. Down here he also led the league, that is 
reading from the bottom up. 

He redeemed himself in basketball, proving to be one of the best guards 
ever to wear the maroon and gray. 

He is a great favorite on the dance floor, where he may be seen at his 
best. Many a girl has been carried home in a taxi, after following "Yeke's" 
fantastic steps all night. 

He hopes some day to become an agent ; so keep this in mind boys, you 
may want to have a good man some day.

CHESTER M. WOODWARD Phi Psi 

Woonsocket High School "Tub" General Coti »n 

Football 1 ; Captain 2. Baseball 1 — 2. Class President. 

Advertising Manager "Fabricator" 

This Tub hails from the wild and wooly town of Woon-sock-et. He 
comes with quite a rep as an athlete having' made a home run without hitting 
the ball. 

Tub has succeeded in making himself one of the most popular boys not 
only with the fellows at school, but also with the town girls who chase him 
with clubs "Sh ! don't say anything." 

His inexhaustable endurance has earned him the name of "Six Hours," 
which is a record. 

Tub is very cozy. No one sees him go or come as he usually plays a

Jack is one of those qniet sort of chaps. He doesn't say much but he 
certainly is there when it comes to books. He took the general cotton 
course for three years, and has made a remarkable record. When Jack 
steps forth into the world, we expect that he will do some great work in 
the cotton industry.

Archie can be found most any time either in the knitting" department 
saying his prayers over one of the machines that has refused to work, or 
down in the chem. lab. trying to compete with Munsell in color. He can 
put any color of the rainbow on a sock and guarantee it to withstand any- 
thing' but soap and water. 

Archie speaks well of the small lab ; he says that the chemists here cer- 
tainly have a wide scope of knowledge no matter what the subject, and es- 
pecially pertaining to the fair sex.

Fairhaven High School 



HAROLD S. AUSTIN 

"Grave Digger"' 



C. Y. P. 



This youth comes from the great and thriving town of Fairhaven. How- 
ever, we have hopes that he will be able to live this clown, (if he lives long 
enough). After spending his early years digging potatoes, milking cows 
and performing man}' other such duties connected with the farm, he de- 
cided to quit work forever, so he entered the Textile school. Here he ex- 
pected to absorb the technique of the cotton industry, and incidentally, chase 
a pair of mules. 

Besides school, Austin is quite an automobile man. He can be seen 
most any time after school hours, jazzing around town in a Durant twin-two. 



Wisconsin Universitv 



ROBERT E. CHESBRO 

"Bob" 



Phi Psi 
Knitting". 



This take-off of Apollo came here from the University of Wisconsin to 
take up the gentle art of knitting. He gives no good reason for this, but we 
believe it is because he will be able to pass out sheer silk hosiery to the 
corn-feds of Sheboygan, thus reminding him of the good old East. 

"Bob" is a great boy for playing cards, but can not get used to not 
having guns on the table. 

He has been at Textile only one year, but has made a host of friends, 
who wish him the best of luck, and who sincerely hope that some day he 
will be able to sell them silk socks at $.25 a pair.

Delta Kappa Phi 

General Cotton 



The war over and the textile industry of France in an unstable condition, 
John decided he needed a good education to serve his country, so he left his 
home thousands of miles behind to come to good old Textile. This also 
shows how the fame of Textile has spread. 

After two Years of hard work, John intends to heed the call of gay 
Paree, and show them a few tricks they do in New Bedford, and likewise, 
operate one or more of the most modern mills in eastern Europe, in which 
undertaking - he has the best wishes of srood old Textile.

C. S. obtained a certificate from Textile in '22, but evidently "The Call 
of the Wild" beckoned him back, and it seems as though he returned rather 
willingly. The same, as when here on his other visit, C. S. is seen out- 
side onlv when he is hurrying - to or from school, but the reward he will 
reap for such labor will be of no little value.

Delta Kappa Phi 
C. Y. P. 



After winning the war, Pete entered a business school, but after a 
short stay there he decided that a collar and tie job was not to his liking, so 
he immediately set out for Textile School. Pete has been with us but two 
years, having taken a special course, but in this time he has certainly made- 
a name for himself, both as a baseball player and as a dancer. 

We hear that he is pretty good in C. Y. P. but that the chem. lab. with 
its perfumed breezes holds no charms for him. 

When he has completed his education at the institution for "bashful 
boys," Pete expects to sail forth into the great unknown and rise to fame as 
a successful manufacturer of rare cotton goods.

Lee was another of those gluttons for punishment, who after finishing 
a special course, returned to Textile like a prodigal son. This time he took 
another special course — continued from where he left off in 1923. 

Lee will stick till the subject is mastered in all its intricate details, and 
then he will return to China, there to set a standard for his country and the 
world. Good Luck, "T. H."

"Jake" was admitted to New Bedford only after getting a passport from 
the American Consul located in Social, a part of Woonsocket. He also 
brought a letter of introduction from the mayor and "kid" Gartzu, two of 
the town's most prominent pugilists. His life in school was one continual 
fight with "Nib" Hurley over "Nib's" failure to he collegiate. "Jake" was, 
when he came out with the only 20 inch pants at school. He was elected 
captain of the "bobbin throwers' club" by Dan Taft, because of his ability 
to wallop Hardy every time. 

After leaving here, Jake intends to go to the University of Maryland 
to take up languages, including English.

Cap has been around so long now that he is cpiite a fixture in the school. 
He came back to take up a P. G. in chemistry, after spending three long 
rears in taking the General Cotton Course. 

Cap came here from a sojourn in France, where he was a lieutenant in 
the infantry. After returning to good old U. S. A. he was promoted to 
a captaincy because of his efficient and courageous work over there. 

He is "still a bit wobbly in the knees, but being a glutton for punishment, 
wouldn't even think of missing classes unless they placed him in a straight 

jacket. 

We expect Cap to step out and pull down a good job, for he sure has 

earned it.

Phi Psi 
C. Y. P. 



"Fred" came to school about three weeks later than the rest of us. 
These three weeks were taken up in deciding whether to go to Philadelphia 
or here. 

His first year was spent in trying to find out how many times he could 
stay out and not get kicked out. He never found out. but made a won- 
derful record in doing: it. 

He did not return for the second year, as he spent his time selling 
automobiles. He sold just one, and that went on the rocks. He returned 
again this year to take up a special course in C. Y. P. His increased interest 
should surely warrant him a good position when he steps out.

This good looking youth is none other than our old friend 2.10, who 
hails from Pawtucket, the Bee Hive of Industry. He spends most of his 
time studying, except week-ends, when he may be found in Providence, 
dancing with a bobbed hair damsel. He is a great man when it comes to 
dancing, and he doesn't need an orchestra, for he can keep very good time 
whistling. 

Trott changed his course after the first year to take a special course 
in C. Y. P. When school is over in June, he expects to go into business 
as a broker, and he will succeed if he works as hard as he has at Textile.

HISTORY OF THE SECOND YEAR CLASS 



Picker tenders to the right of them, 
Slasher tenders to the left of them, 
Chemists all around them. 
Onward came the new men, 



Oh, what a change they made, 
Eddy came up the street to register, 
And some one quoted Shakespeare, 
Oh ho, what manner of men are these 
Who encase the air in parentheses. 




ND then came more embryo chemists, supers, sweepers, et cetera. Thusly came the class of '25 
into existence. Surprises came thick and fast. We found that the card room was not used for 
poker parties ; that the mules did not eat oats ; and that the alcohol in the stock room could not 
be used for mixing cocktails because it contained strychnine. 

We played football as we played the Arcadia, for amusement only, winning every game and 
playing to a scoreless tie in two. 

One of the chemists in the lab. blew up a little Hydrogen, and up to the time of going to 
press the dastardly rapscallion responsible for the deed had not been found. 

The rough chemists' association was formed and claimed the class championship amidst great vocal 
opposition. 

Our first crack at mid-vear came and went, srone but not forgotten. 

The John Brown club was organized with dues of five cents a week, payable in advance to treasurer 
Dinty Finnell. The club disbanded after a few weeks' existence because of pecuniary embarrassment. 

Shortly after, the tennis club was formed, with Al Radway as president, and "Clam Chowder" Clive 
as manager and cheering squad. Ed Foster of '24 won the tournament cup presented by the Chinese Club. 
The runner-up cup was taken by Jim the Hanyak, class of '25. 

And then, as night precedes the dawn, came the finals and the summer recess. Thus ended the first 
year. 

We came back and a few managed to find out that a Steam Boiler is nothing more or less than 
that which generates steam. The Lonely Hearts club rose and fell by the wayside, and then the K. K. K. 



[Forty- four] 



came into existence with Jimmie Morrison, Eddie Ramos and Joe Noviek as members. "Clam Chowder" 
Give, that demon chaperon, managed to put them through a successful financial season. 

Christmas came, and all the hoys chipped in to buy For "Rip" Nash, our star athlete and four letter 
man. a pair oi suitable gloves. The donors were thanked in the spirit that they gave. The Anti-Pro- 
fanit) club was the last club formed during the season, all the members resolving to do no more swear- 
ing — and no less. The official expletives as designated by the Club may be had on application. 

All became quiet along the "Potomac" and another vacation hove into view.

HISTORY OF THE FIRST YEAR CLASS 




EPORT in Room 5 after being - registered," was the first order given the many new members 
of the New Bedford Textile School. After much searching and many inquiries, we finally found 
it, and there for the first time met our future class-mates. At first we were divided into small 
groups of old acquaintances, but as the morning wore on, we began to mingle with each other. 
By the time we were called to order by Mr. Smith, we knew one another as though we had 
been brought up together. 

One by one our instructors were introduced to us, and they each gave us a short outline of 
the work which they would attempt to teach us, and gave us a list of the material necessary. We met 
these instructors again in their respective class-rooms within a week, and after our first visit to the dif- 
ferent departments, we felt capable of going forth into the forld as experts in nearly every line of the 
textile industry. Since then, we feel that we know less every day, and some of our mistakes have borne 
us out in this conviction. 

Although we may not, as a whole, be the most intellectual class to enter the school, we have our 
prodigies. Haarla has developed a new field in chemistry by lighting water. This feat he has accom- 
plished by running the water through a Bunsen burner. Davis can send a bobbin through a loom both 
ways at once. Hathaway can increase production by sending two bobbins through a loom at once, while 
Murphy has succeeded in putting a left hand nut on a right hand thread. 

In the athletic line, we have Carlow, Mullarkey, Hathaway and Orr, all mainstays on the basketball 
team. In baseball, we expect to hear from Carlow, Rooney and Mullarkey. 

Our class also seemed to contain valuable material for the Frats, and there was much competition 
between the fraternities to secure brother members. Much amusement was afforded the populace of New 
Bedford and the upper classmen at the initiation ceremonies — also many cigarettes. 

We have with us students from distant lands, China, Sweden, Finland and Japan each being rep- 
resented. We fear that we are more willing to listen to tales of the Orient, the Desert, or the difficulties 
of getting pure fresh water for our cities, than some of the lectures. However, we must study so as to 
be able personally to visit some of these lands of which we hear so much. 

Taking it as a whole, has there ever been a class that has done more for the school than good 
old '26?

FOOTBALL 




VERYONE came back to school after a hard summer's training- ready to play football, but a team 
never materialized because of the failure to procure a coach. The prospects were hue for a winning- 
team there being many freshmen who had starred at schools all over New England. 
These men will probably be back next year so it is sincerely hoped that a coach will be procured 
in ample time to develop a great team.

BASKETBALL 




HE team got away to an early start due to no interference of football practice. The team was 
greatly changed from last year only Willey, Hoffman, and Morrison, a substitute, being left. The 
gaps were easily filled by first year men among whom were, "Zip " Carlow, a crack forward from 
Adams, "Chuck" Orr, an experienced center from Attleboro, "Red Mullarkey, a veteran guard 
from the Holy Family High School, and "Boob" Hathaway, a forward coming from the local 
High School. 

The team started off by thoroughly trouncing Bradford-Durfee Textile 44 to 24. Out of a sched- 
ule of 19 games only 6 were lost, while only one game was lost on the home floor. They defeated some 
of the best aggregations in the city including the Wamsutta Mill team, Vocational, and the Y. M. C. A. 
The season as a whole was very successful, under the management of Fayette Grady Lobley. 

The city championship, which has been held by "Tex" for the last two years, was lost to the High 
School only after a terrific battle in which both teams held the lead many times, but when the final 
whistle blew the High School was leading by a scant margin. 

Great things are expected of next year's team which will be under the leadership of Captain-elect 
Hoffman.

BASEBALL '24 

HIS sport started a couple of weeks late, due mainly to the difficulty of procuring a coach. How 
ever, Mr. Bayreuther finally consented to coach the team. The first practice was held at Button- 
wood Park on April the 15th. About thirty five men appeared on the field and although it was 
the first time this year, they made a very good showing. There is plenty of material this year for 
Mr. Bayreuther to pick from. The weak spots that caused so much trouble last year, are now 
held down by men that show great promise. We have been fortunate this year in obtaining some 
valuable material amongst the new men. 
Mullarkey and Rooney are in line for the place behind the mound. Carlow, Hoffman and Truesdale 
expect to take care of the twirling. Captain Kagan will hold down second sack, and Pallatroni will probably 
take up his old position on third. Mills has been doing some fine work at short stop and will in all proba- 
bility hold down this position. First sack, and the field positions are undecided. However, there is no 
cause for worry on this score, for there are plenty of recruits. Rigby, Hathaway, Dunn, Joy, Houth, 
Cleveland. Willey, Orr. Gross. Waring and Foster are all trying out for a place on the team. Woodward 
who has been unable to play because of a bad arm, is expected to be back in the game before the season 
has finished. 

With such a wealth of material at hand. Textile expects to stage a mighty come-back and make up 
for the rough treatment she received on the diamond last year.

TENNIS 



N the spring of 1923 the tennis enthusiasts of the school got together and decided to start a tennis 
team at the school. Al Radway was elected president and worked hard in giving the new sport 
a start. A tournament was held to determine the champion player of the school to whom the 
Chinese Club offered to give a handsome cup. The cup was won by Edward J. Foster ; runner 
up was Jimmie Wong. 

Altho the team did not have a successful season among scholastic matches, the foundation 
had been laid for future teams. 
This year a net was put up in the gym. to give the team an early start, and it has been well ap- 
preciated as shown by the consistent practicing of the team. 

A strong schedule has heen arranged by Manager Radway. The newly elected officers are Edward 
Foster, President, and Joseph Novick, Secretary and Treasurer.

WHY FRATERNITIES? 



T is the belief of many people that a Fraternity in a Textile School is unnecessary. Unlike the 
College Fraternity which is for social purposes, a Textile Fraternity has three distinct objects, 
good fellowship, scholastic standing and helpful business aid in later life. 

The Fraternities are recognized by the Professors as being a great aid to the students while 
in school as they keep him working all the time to obtain the highest standing and thus be an honor 
to his Fraternity. 

The Textile industry today is made up of many Fraternity men who are constantly striving 
to aid each other thus producing greater business harmony. 




[Sixty] 




[Sirty-one] 



Of the three Fraternities in this school the Phi Psi is the oldest, being 
established in 1904. The Delta Kappa Phi dates back to 1917, while the latest 
addition to the role is the Sigma Phi Tau which was organized late in 1922. 
Under this head may also be considered the Chinese Club which was also 
formed in 1922.

THE CHINESE STUDENTS' CLUB IN NEW BEDFORD, MASS. 




HE Chinese Students' Club" was organized in the Spring of 1922, by a group of nine students, all 
of the Textile School, with Mr. C. T. Tu as president of the club. Ever since then, the club has 
been growing with unlimited prospects and has evidently made a remarkable showing in various 
lines of activities, during the last two years. This is due largely to the increase of active mem- 
bers, who, with noble ideals and sublime aims of innovations to Chinese industry, have made pos- 
sible the best club that has ever been known in the Textile School of New Bedford. To give a 
brief account of the club's activities and achievements. I may take the liberty to say that the club 
has been very successful in keeping the members in good working order, in associating with other clubs 
in a very friendly manner, in conducting a discussion meeting monthly, to study and to discuss both indus- 
trial and political problems, and last of all in maintaining its individuality and its integrity. 

In speaking of our intentions and of our progressive inclinations to develop our industries at home, 
it is necessary to present to you some of the facts which will convince you that within the last ten or 
twenty years, China has developed a cotton industry which has attracted world-wide attention and which, 
sooner or later, will occupy a considerable portion of the entire cotton industry in the world. Of course, 
it will take some time for her to accomplish this. It is beyond any doubt that, since the World- 

War, China has been progressing to such an extent that, judging from what she has done and what 
she is doing in the making of a new country from the old. with the support of other countries at large, 
and also the help of her own intellectual body, it will not take a long time before she will demonstrate 
to the world her art in manipulating the most complicated machinery with efficiency and intelligence. 
However, the matter has proved to be very difficult under the present circumstances ; but she real- 
izes that a nation, or any nation, should withstand the unprofitable season as well as the profitable, and 
manage to get over it with as little loss as possible. With the realization of these facts, she sends out 
young men to different countries to study in order to collect as much material as possible for the recon- 
struction of the country. Nowadays, every country is benefited by having a well developed science in 
manufacturing, which enables them to compete with one another in this commercial world. A country, 
not having such means, is forced out of the circle without mercy; so it is more than necessary to mate- 



[ Seventy-six] 



rialize and standardize the conditions by the adaptation of the .scientific methods of manufacturing. There- 
fore, we, .-indents, are trying to acquire an adequate knowledge in this country hefore we ever attempt 
to lea\ e. 

As for the club this yean we are very fortunate, indeed, that four new members have been added to 
the list, and 1 take for granted that these members are of excellent standing. We are also fortunate 
that one oi our old members, Mr. T. H. Lee. who last year, on account of illness, had to leave us for a 
while is here again to continue his studies. On behalf of the club, I wish to express our hearty welcome 
to these new members and hope that they will enjoy every right and privilege of the club.

SOCIALS 




INCE the advent of our new gymnasium, we have been able to carry out some of our fondest 
hopes, mainly, that of having school dances. Although completed but about a year, it has been the 
scene of some gaiety. Our first dance was held in the gym on October 24th. 

Later in the same month, came the annual open nights of the Fraternities. The Phi Psi Fra- 
ternity held their night at the Hotel Lincoln, and the Delta Kappa Phi held their's at the New 
Bedford Hotel. Invitations were extended to the new men at school, and many of them attended. 
Short speeches were given by some of the Fraternity members and also by some of the Alumni. 
After the banquet an hour or so was spent in general getting acquainted. 

On January 14th the Phi Psi held another dance in Duffs large hall. On the 23rd of the same month, 
the Delta Kappa Phi held their dance in the same hall. There was a large assemblage at the hall on both 
occasions. Then on the 15th of February came another school dance. On this occasion the boys showed 
the world that Mrs. Vernon Castle has still a lot to learn, and that looms, combers, and beakers do not 
hold all their attention. 

The Alumni held a cabaret in the school gym on April 26th. It is needless to say that the occasion 
was a success. We hear rumors that Grimmie blossomed forth in a new suit and fedora soon afterwards. 
Of course we do not wish to incriminate anyone, but — 

Our year ended as well as it started, for during the latter part of April, the Delta Kappa Phi held 
another frivolous affair in Duffs hall. This was followed soon by a dance in the school gym, given by 
the members of the basketball team. Then shortly after this came the Phi Psi dance. 

Now that our school days are over and we look back over the many good times we have had, we hope 
that succeeding classes will enjoy themselves and use the gym to as good advantage as we have.

ALUMNI 

Class of 1924; 

New Bedford State Textile School ; 

New Bedford, Mass. 

Dear "Soon to be Alumnus ;" 

We have been asked to contribute a few words to your Year Book, and we certainly appreciate this 
honor and so at this time we extend to you our very best wishes for your future success in the cold busi- 
ness world into which you are so soon to go forth, even as we did before you. 

Remember that all Alumni of our School should help each other when ever possible, and bearing 
this in mind, do not at any time fear to ask any of the older Alumni for advice. Often times a friendly 
tip by a more experienced person will save you lots of worry and work. 

When graduating, you automatically become elegible to join the Association, by paying the dues of 
one dollar a year to the Treasurer of the Alumni Association. So at this time we extend to you also our 
wish that you become members. 

Do not allow your interest in your school to lag when you graduate, because all of the Alumni 
realize in later years that much of their success is due to the fundamentals learned at the "School Worth 
While." 

Very truly yours, 

A. H. GRIMSHAW, Sec'y. 
Alumni Association of the "School Worth While."

PROBLEM IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING 
(By Mr. Walton) 

If there are three trolley cars on the same 
circuit, one is a mile from the power house, the 
second car is two miles from the first car, and 
the third car is five miles from the first; the first 
car uses 25 amps, the second one 18.75 amps, and 
the third 12.5 amps; voltage at the power house 
is 575 volts ; resistance pi trolley wire is .002 
ohms per mile; and the track less than that; 
using second hand cars, and painted red, why is 
the motorman's name Riley?

go up in the air together.

overhead of the Corning Glass W T orks for the 
rest of the year. 

OH-H YEAH 

The Chemistry Dep't. wishes to announce that 
"Dinty" Finnell has not changed a bit. The 
words of a former Chemistry student are still 
true, "Everett, you must have a hard time try- 
ing to talk to your mother." 



Jim Morrison announced the arrival of Spring 
with a set of 20" bell-bottoms. 

We heard that Joe Paradis is going to be sorry 
when night school closes, — but we'll hand it to 
him for a hard worker. 

Joe Curry has retired the Terrible Trousers 
and has blossomed forth in a new pair which are 
also built quite close to the ground. 

There was considerable excitement in the Lab. 
the other day when Joe Houth nearly did may- 
hem or worse to "Grimmy", but he thought 
better of it, and the rest of us were quite re- 
lieved, for "Grimmy's" sake anyhow. 

The failure of the Variety Store next door is 
looked for almost anyday now, as the cellar 
windows have all been nailed down, — and that's 
another joke. 

After careful investigation the Staff has found 
out that "Cap" Sayers will not become a Trustee 
if he stays at Textile another Year. 

In recalling his youth Walter Joy says that 
on one occasion while playing "London Bridges" 
the darn bridge leaked. Anyway it removed his 
freckles.

LAB. LOCALS 



Joe Novick says that he at last realizes that 
the small Lab. is no place for ladies. 

While standing outside oi school one day Joe 
Novick was mistaken for a mulespinner. Evi- 
dently how legs is one of the qualifications neces- 
sary for tin's branch of work. 

Eddie Ramos plans to deal in antiques after 
graduation and is evidently getting an early 

-tart. 



Much to the baseball team's regret White 
says that he will not he a candidate for catcher 
as his mother will not lend him a clothes basket. 

L. "Sleepy" Waring still gives sonnamhulistic 
readings about "My Girl." 

A hook entitled "My two years in Textile col- 
lecting other people's apparatus and not buying 
any matches." written by J. Tite Waring, has 
made its appearance.

I held her pretty little hand

1 loved that girl to beat the band

Her daddy loved her even more 
(My carcus still feels mighty sore) 
He kicked me through the open door

John has a lovely girl. 
Her name is Mary Cutter ; 
He calls her Oleomargarine, 
For he hasn't any but her.

We did not know that temperature had any- 
thing to do with radio. But Mr. Busby maintains 
that last winter he often got Chile on a cold 
night. 



"Great stuff," said the lady to the bird dealer, 
as she took another swallow. 



"This is pretty soft," said the movie comedian, 
as the custard pie hit the back of his neck. 



"This is a wise crack," quoth the yeggman, as 
he inserted another stick of dynamite into the 
safe.

Professor Bunk — "If you called a calf's tail 
a leg, how many legs would a calf have?" 
Bri°ht student — "Five." 



Mr. Brooks — Well boys, I got France on my 
radio last night. 

Ramos — Thats nothing, I got Greece on my 
vest. 



The best way to keep an Englishman happy

When You Start Practical Work — 

Insist on using a lubricant that will 
not drip aiul waste from bearings 

Expert observers have found out that only one drop 
of oil out of every four bought by the average textile 
mill, actually stays in the bearing and is worn out in 
lubricating. The other three are sheer WASTE. They 
leak out or throw off — dripping and spattering all over 
the machines and causing damage to goods in process. 

Progressive mills no longer tolerate this condition— 
they use the drip-less, waste-less, spot-less lubricant—

PATENT OFFICE 



NON-FLUID OIL actually overcomes all WASTE- 
it stays in bearings instead of leaking and wasting away. 
For this reason it prevents costly stains on goods in proc- 
ess, provides better and cleaner lubrication than liquid 
oil, and saves time as well as lubricant. 

Write today for copy of our bulletin "Lubrication 
of Textile Machinery" — it's really a textbook on 
textile lubrication.

AVING read this book we sincerely hope that you have enjoyed it. but that you take it lightly if 
it has been in any way sarcastic. If you are "knocked" too often consider it your fault as you 
Lettered the opportunity. 

It in any case you do g"et "thick" we refer you to Jake Pressman wdio will do all the scrap- 
ping- for the start down in the old sand lot near the railroad track. Said sand lot has heen the 
scene of great bloodshed and since we do not wish to see anymore, keep away from Jake as he 
bleeds easily and is a rare specimen to lose. 

We thank you.
